There is more going on at the 12th World Congress than ever before! Make sure you have time to experience it all.

See ITS in Motion--Live
Experience innovative new ITS technologies on California roadways during the 12th World Congress. You will see the benefits of projects that demonstrate faster, safer, smarter surface transportation technologies as a result of a Call for Submissions (CFS) issued by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the Metropolitan Transportation Commission of the San Francisco Bay Area (MTC), the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), the California Center for Innovative Transportation (CCIT), and the Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITSA). This program presents a new way for the public and private sectors to do business. Based on hands-on experience, the program will help deploy the right ITS technologies on California's roads faster and more efficiently.

This pilot demonstration process enables private companies to use public infrastructure to demonstrate their self-funding ITS solutions in the months before, during, and after the World Congress. It's a win-win-win proposition for all parties. The agencies "test drive" the latest ITS innovations, and providers demonstrate the value of their products and gain previously unavailable hands-on experience with the public infrastructure - and World Congress attendees see ITS in action!

The World Congress will host a special one day event for CEOs of state departments of transportation providing programming on ITS topics, special "insiders tours" or "VIP tours" of the Innovative Mobility Showcase, exhibits, and the innovative California ITS infrastructure projects. This event is an exclusive opportunity for transportation officials to meet among peers to learn about and experience ITS.

The AASHTO event begins at the World Congress and extends to other key California locations when the CEOs participate in a scanning tour of other transportation initiatives that are underway in California.

Technology Demonstrations
Integrated into the overall event, technology demonstrations by leading companies with revolutionary products and solutions are planned for you. The technology demonstrations may be experienced as part of the technical tours that will take place during the Congress, they may be featured in the Innovative Mobility Showcase, or as pre- and post- event experiences throughout California. Interested companies and agencies are participating in this leading-edge platform to bring more ITS experiences to you.

Women in Transportation Program
A unique program developed in partnership with ITS America and Women In Transporation will be presented for the first time at the 12th World Congress. The Program and related events will focus on the major transportation projects lead by women from around the world. A keynote speaker will open the session and will then be joined by a panel of women who will share their experience and lead an interactive discussion. A networking reception will follow the program. Be sure to register for this exclusive program, a first time World Congress event.
